The University of Siena is one of Europe's oldest Universities. Since its foundation the University's history has been closely linked to that of the city and it has shared the city's strong international vocation and its openness to exchange and cooperation; so much so that there were already 44 foreign students enrolled at the university in the fifteenth century!Today, with over 760 years of history, the University of Siena maintains a leading role on the national and international scene.The University is open to dialogue with local bodies,other Italian and foreign universities and those who carry out research and produce culture, thus helping students in their training and preparation for life after university and the world of work.

The Ufficio Speciale per le Relazioni Internazionali (International Relations Office)deals with and promotes relations between the University of Siena and other universities around the world through a host of activities that aim to realize exchanges of students and academic staff and develop and expand international cooperation through: bilateral agreements with foreign universities; international cooperation projects for the exchange of academic staff and researchers; bilateral and multilateral agreements for international doctorates and masters; European programmes such as the Lifelong Learning Program; grants for study abroad; welcoming foreign students and teaching staff; European apprenticeships; regional programmes for international cooperation and partnership activities; welcoming summer school groups.
